Microdermabrasion is a treatment that is popular for improving skin health and appearance. It is a versatile treatment that can tackle a variety of skin concerns, including reducing early signs of aging and eliminating skin scars and marks.
While microdermabrasion isn’t useful on its own for deep skin damage, the treatment can achieve positive results for superficial, mild, and shallow skin issues. When performed by a certified and trained dermatologist, the treatment can help you regain your skin’s youthful glow and smooth appearance.
Under Dr. Verebelyi’s guidance, Jen Pearson and the team at Colorado Skin & Vein, offer microdermabrasion treatments to our patients who want to improve their skin. Depending on your skin concern, you may need more than one treatment; therefore, it is important to understand how to budget your microdermabrasion procedure.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is the process of rejuvenating the skin through careful exfoliation of the outer skin layer. The treatment exfoliates the damaged and dead skin cells. This instantly clears the pores and exposes the fresh underlayer of the skin. The objective is to stimulate collagen production, which acts as a healer and rejuvenator, which is why microdermabrasion can be used for a variety of skin conditions.
A microdermabrasion treatment takes approximately 1 hour, at the end of which serum is applied to minimize dryness and flaking and encourage the healing process. Most patients experience tenderness, mild swelling, and redness that disappear within a few hours.
The cost of the treatment varies from $100 to $200, with the average cost being around $136. The technique used, size of the treated area and the depth of microdermabrasion are factors to consider in determining the cost of each session. Additionally, depending on your needs, you may require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results, such as eliminating acne scars. Our experts at Colorado Skin & Vein will design a treatment plan accordingly during your first consultation about what to expect.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Thanks to its versatility, the microdermabrasion treatment can be recommended for many skin complaints:
- Dull complexion
- Age spots and sun damage
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Pigmentation changes
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Small lines
The process is highly effective in boosting collagen production, which can enhance the body’s healing abilities to rejuvenate the skin surface and eliminate small marks and scars. It is a popular non-invasive treatment to improve skin health without surgical procedures or downtime.
There is also no age restriction on the treatment, making it safe for young and mature skin.

Am I a Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
If you have dull skin, mild acne, small scars, minor sun damage, or even thin wrinkles, you are a good candidate for microdermabrasion treatments. We also warn our patients that used alone, microdermabrasion treatments are not effective on deep scars. However, Dr. Verebelyi and the team at Colorado Skin & Vein can recommend combination treatments for deeper skin concerns.
We advise pregnant women, patients with uncontrolled diabetes, and patients with healing and bleeding issues against microdermabrasion.
The staff at Colorado Skin & Vein is very helpful and always makes sure to answer any questions during visits. I can tell that they truly care about the patient experience. Thank you Dr. Verebelyi and Team!
